Applications are invited for a Specialty Doctor to join our committed team within the General Medicine Department in Gastroenterology at Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. This is a substantive or fixed term post for 12 PA’s per week and you will be required to work a 12 person full shift pattern on the general medicine middle grade on call rota.
This is an exciting time to join Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. A brand new purpose built Day Theatre was commissioned in December 2001. Within this Day Theatre there is an Endoscopy Suite comprising 2 procedure rooms. There are also examination rooms and patient interview rooms. The procedure rooms are fully equipped with video endoscopy equipment along with a full range of therapeutic modalities. Other investigations performed in the Endoscopy Unit include day case liver biopsies.
It is intended that the successful applicant for this post will help develop and support nurse endoscopy within this unit. There is a centralised booking system for direct access endoscopy as part of the booked admission programme for the South West region.
Yeovil District Hospital has enjoyed a stable and successful history; trusted and respected by our patients, staff and commissioners, and well-rated by the ‘Care Quality Commission’ and ‘Monitor’. We have been repeatedly rated as one of the top-10 healthcare employers in the country, a leading-light in global stroke research and development, and attracted national interest in our iCARE model, which has established the principles of exemplary patient care experience within our Hospital.
Yeovil District Hospital has recently been awarded ‘Vanguard’ status following a successful joint bid with NHS England. Being a ‘Vanguard’ site identifies us as one of the most innovative trusts in the country and gives us unique access to national support and funding to realise our exciting plans.
There are excellent facilities in a purpose built Education Centre on-site. Purpose built, off-site, accommodation for Yeovil District Hospital staff members opened on 1st August 2012 and is managed by Yarlington Housing Group.
Please note that this Trust, in line with the Specialty Doctor Terms and Conditions of Service, does not count time spent in a Specialty Registrar or Registrar post towards incremental credit.
